Suspense/thriller author Rebecca Drake takes us to a suburban town, where four close friends each hide dirty secrets that are slowly revealed as the fast-paced Just Between Us unfolds. This domestic drama, similar in some ways to Big Little Lies, showcases their perfect, small town existence, but behind the public facade there is a deep darkness.
Three friends believe that their other friend is in an abusive marriage and when the husband is found dead, they all agree to cover up the murder. As the investigation proceeds, nothing is what it seems, and each friend must come clean as the authorities get closer and closer to the truth. Though at times decisions the friends make are a bit far fetched, the story is addicting, with realistically flawed characters and a heart-pounding mystery.
In this wonderfully suspenseful crime novel, Drake touches on domestic violence, relationships and marriage; food for thought when it comes to honesty and privacy amongst friends. Just Between Us: A Novel is a fun, quick, read when you need a break from your own rat race!
Just Between Us: A Novel will be available on January 9th.
